What to wear to a denim themed event | Thrift Social Nairobi

Denim is absolutely one of my favorite pieces of clothing and when Thrift Social 7 had the Denim edition I was so excited about it because I was so sure that the fashion and style would be absolutely refreshing and out of this world (read Kenya) . Much to my expectation I did not get disappointed. Custom , ripped , dip and dyed, dyed, frayed, clean , all types of denim was available .

When invited to a themed party here are some of the rules that you need to stick to:

  1. Observe the theme
  2. Make the theme your own
  3. Be unique but stay true to the theme.

At least that is what I try to do. For the Thrift Social 7 : Denim Edition I wanted something unique as always, so I had Robert Mandela , a designer am partnering with to make me a custom Roma Designs Africa outfit which turned out pretty good. I wanted a longline shirt with a mandarin collar and matching pants, to make my own canadian tuxedo as written by fellow fashion blogger Ian Mussilli , on his blog HERE.

When invited to a denim themed party there are a lot of looks you can wear. For the guys , one can wear a simple denim shirt, pair it with black khakis and converse sneakers, alternatively you can wear a denim jacket and variants of the jacket, (like those that are hooded, or have leather sleeves)

For the ladies , a huge trend is currently in, the choker. You could incorporate that into your look by wearing a denim choker , wear an oversize jeans shirt or dress, or tie a denim turban .
